Video Transcript for MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part number MT70050.To protect your MaxxTow accessories with the MaxxTow trailer hitch receiver lock, it's going to add security to your ball mounts, bike racks, hitch covers, and even your cargo carriers. It's designed to work with your 2" x 2" receiver only.It has a 3" pin length, which makes it a flush mount design, so it's going to be harder to cut. It uses a unique ball bearing locking system that's going to provide maximum security. It automatically engages when the pin is inserted. The dead bolt also features a dust cap. This is going to prevent road grime, dirt, and debris from getting inside the lock cylinder.The textured grip on each side makes it easy to handle.

The keys have a unique cut design, so they're going to be almost impossible to replicate. Its chrome-plated steel construction and design is going to make it durable and corrosion resistant. The pin itself is 5/8 in diameter, and the entire length of the lock is 6-7/8". One other great feature is the keys won't disengage from the dead bolt until the pin is place. This prevents you from losing them.Customers on our site are comparing this to the Tow Ready Hitch Receiver Lock, part number 5201.

Both are made of chrome that will help prevent rust and corrosion. The Tow Ready will fit your 2" and 2-1/2" trailer hitch, whereas the MaxxTow only fits a 2" trailer hitch receiver. The Tow Ready has a simpler design, whereas the MaxxTow has a more snug fit, providing more security. The MaxxTow is easier to handle, because it has a textured grip on both sides, whereas the Tow Ready just has a smaller pin on one side.When you're ready to use your accessories, it's very easy to use. Just put it through your pin holes, put on the dead bolt, and you're all set.

That's going to complete a look at the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part number MT70050.

The little ball bearings inside the locking side mechanism have rusted out and get stuck in the slots they are in and I can't always unlock or lock it back. It is pretty much hit or miss. This has happened on several occasions. The last time I rotated my trailer ball I couldn't get it to unlock. When I finally got it to unlock, I couldn't get it to lock back. Now that I have got it to lock I have not tried to unlock it because I am not sure that I will be able to unlock or lock it back again. 795576

This lock didn't last a year. Even though it was lubricated at install and the end cap seal was in place it rusted internally. I had a heck of a time removing it and then couldn't get the key to work properly. I didn't dare put it back on. Threw it away. 764424

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Is MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Okay to Use Instead of Threaded Pin for Bike Rack
    As long as the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # MT70050 fits with the bike rack then you should be okay to use it with an anti-rattle like the etrailer # e99007 to help limit the movement of your bike rack. With that being said, if we carry the manufacturer of the bike rack you have, just let me know and I can see if we have a threaded pin that also includes a lock just so that you can get much more of a clean install and you are using products that you know are designed for the...

  • Can MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # MT70050 Be Keyed Alike
    I do have an option for you, however the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # MT70050 that you referenced cannot be keyed alike with other units. If you order multiple units they will all use a unique key. For a similar hitch lock that CAN be keyed alike I recommend the etrailer.com # e98880 that has a 2-5/8 inch span or the longer # e98881 that features a 3-5/8 inch span. Both options have a double chrome plate for rust resistance and can be keyed alike with additional locks by selecting...

  • Does MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # MT70050 Have Weight Capacity
    Since hitch pins don't actually bear any of the weight of a trailer they are not rated with weight capacities. The tongue weight of the trailer actually will push down hard enough that it will bind the ball mount into the hitch tube which allows the hitch pin to not have to carry any weight. What that means is that the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # MT70050 would work great towing your trailer that weighs 10,000 lbs.

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for a 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD
    For a locking hitch pin that will fit the 2" trailer hitch you have on your 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD I recommend the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # MT70050. This lock has a span of 3" which should be more than enough for your hitch though you may want to take a quick measurement on the outside tube just to be sure. It has a chrome plating for corrosion resistance and it comes with two keys. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Parts To Tow A Trailer With Electric Brakes With A 2015 Dodge Durango V6
    To tow a trailer with electric brakes with the 2015 Dodge Durango without tow package, you will need a trailer hitch, 4-way wiring, 7-way plug, brake controller, ball mount and lock. For the hitch, I recommend Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch part # C13182 which is an easier installation compared to the other options that require removal of the impact structure. It does not require drilling to install and can be installed with a 18" spare tire stowed under the vehicle. I have...

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Draw-Tite 5/8 Inch Hitch Pin PC3
    The class III and greater hitch pins like part # PC3 are never going to be the weak point in a towing setup therefore they do not have a working load limit (WLL) or break strength rating. This is pretty standard across all trailer hitch pin manufacturers. The trailer hitch and or ball mount will fail much sooner than the hitch pin will. I know it may seem crazy but I have never seen a hitch pin given any sort of weight rating before. If you really must have a weight capacity rating, then...

  • Parts Needed To Tow A Lightweight Trailer With 2015 Honda Odyssey
    To tow a smaller trailer with the 2015 Honda Odyssey you will need a hitch, lock, ball mount, ball and wiring. If the trailer has electric brakes, you will also need a 7-Way plug on the vehicle and a brake controller. I recommend to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76025 on the Odyssey because it will work well to tow the trailer and also give you a clean OEM look. It is a concealed cross tube design so the only part of the hitch that is visible once installed...

  • Bulldog Hitch Lock Compared to Tow Ready Hitch Lock
    If a thief was willing to come along with a crowbar and attack the part # 5201 like you described realistically they would be the type of thief who would stop at nothing to get what they wanted. Theft deterrents work great at keeping honest people honest, but a determined thief will usually get what they wanted. I would say that in the specific scenario you described the # MT70050 would seem harder to pry off.

  • How to Determine Fitment of B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock
    The B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BWTS51234 has a span of 2-3/4" which you can see in the attached photo. I wasn't able to locate a previous order from you so I don't have a way to compare this to your current hitch lock, but all you'll need to do to make sure this fits is measure the outside dimensions of your 2" hitch receiver on both your Ford Explorer and your Toyota Tacoma to confirm fitment. If you need something longer let me know what length you need and I...
